Protecting Your Family And Preserving Legacy With Thoughtfulness And Care

Understanding Trust Administration

When one or more individuals create a trust, they name one or more trustees to oversee the administration of the trust after they are no longer able to act as trustee due to death or incapacity. This is known as a “successor trustee” and is often a relative or friend.

Successor trustees, as well as surviving spouses, are often at a loss as to how to administer the trust, make distributions to trust beneficiaries, comply with the terms of the trust and the law, and deal with conflict among beneficiaries.

In addition, beneficiaries are often confused as to what the terms of the trust mean and what their rights are under the terms of the trust and the law.
